Texas A&M Biologist Paul Hardin Earns Indiana University Distinguished Alumni Award

Sep 28, 2018
"IU was a fantastic choice for my Ph.D. studies. I received superb training in genetics and molecular biology at IU, which contributed greatly to my success as a scientist. I also met my wife, a fellow Ph.D. student and lab mate, during graduate school, so IU had a huge impact on every aspect of my life."
Dr. Paul E. Hardin, Texas A&M biologist
